A 1966 Ford Thunderbird I noticed parked behind an auto repair shop behind my house.

    It's amazing the kind of cars you see just hanging around.

      True. One time I saw a Jeep with Barbie graphics on it, but I forgot my camera.

        My grandfather made a car out of parts, turned out pretty neat but didn't have seatbelts. The engine was exposed and the 'cabin' was pretty small, but it was his, and he made it, and it was pretty cool. I think they call those kinds of cars "rat-rods", but I don't know much about those.

          Yeah, I'd say that car would qualify as a "rat-rod". They have flat color paint jobs, some of them looking like they have a "patina" finish. They also have exposed engines and wheels, a small bench seat with maybe a blanket draped over it, plain steel rims either with baby moons or no hubcaps, and radically lowered suspension so that the body almost touches the ground.
